"Need I go on, or are you still unclear about the huge differences between Iran and Iraq and why they're handled differently?"
Because Iran wasn't a paper tiger that whose nuclear ambitions had been decimated by 10 years of sanctions and a perfectly valid war in 1991. Because it would have been impossible to invade Iran. Because its easier to pretend to be tough when your work has been done for you by 10 years of UN-enforced sanctions. So, spare us all your garbage.
As far as this crap goes:
"Also, Iran hasn't:
- repeatedly violated terms of a cease-fire agreement with it
- fired on U.S. warplanes patrolling its airspace in accordance with said agreement
- attempted the assassination of a former U.S. president"
... your contention is laugheable. What you are now stating is that we invaded Iraq because it violated a cease-fire agreement and because it attempted the assasination of GHWB. Damn. Why didnt GWB just say that back in 2003? Or is this YOUR new argument? Hurry up and contact GWB. He will need a new argument for the war in a few days when the one from yesterday or the day before are flushed down the toilet.
all that oil then "Mr. Brainsurgeon" ? Not here."
Duh. Iraq has the second highest reserves of oil in the WORLD. And natural gas. You try and drill for that oil with equipment thats been bombed to smithereens.
"So Jay, are you ready to trot off to war with Iran? You seem so by your statements."
Gosh, regular Einstein, aren't you?
The Iran comparison merely debunks the rotten argument that nuclear weapon goals of a nation hostile to the US was the reason to go to war.
Atheism is Myth Understood.
